Perfect for my sister’s prom dress

I used this silk many times before and my sister asked me to make her a prom dress for her senior year and it came out beautifully. The silk is soft and airy and is perfect for bias cut gowns

Purple silk is so Royal

Wow, this silk fabric feels beautiful. I plan to make a maxi bias cut skirt for Xmas, can’t wait! Best price too.

Static-y slippery **** and will show underwear lines yet too beautiful and light not to use

Horrible to cut, not fun to work with the the end product is lovely. If used in clothing, be prepared to wear extra slips or something because it will absolutely cling to things. Very soft, nice and light and decently strong. Took the beadwork embroidery well. The red is the silk chiffon from this store. The color I bought was the gold and I think the first photo is a better indication of the true color than the one on the website here.
